Released in conjunction with a behind-the-scenes DVD, Go Live sees Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi attempt to re-create the orchestral folk-pop of his debut album, Go, in front of an unusually polite but receptive live audience. Recorded at Belgium's Ancienne Belgique at the beginning of his 2010 tour, with a smattering of performances taken from one of his final dates at the Brighton Dome, it's a task that the Icelandic artist passes with flying colors, as his four-piece band somehow manages to produce the same expansive sound as composer Nico Muhly's original arrangements, while his astonishing dreamlike falsetto appears even more impressive without the aid of any studio polish. With only one solo album to his name, the 14-track set is bulked up with sprawling extended versions of its nine numbers, including the ten-minute rendition of "Grow Till Tall," but it's the five new compositions that will intrigue the fans who didn't get to witness the rather elaborate visual spectacle. In keeping with the set list's theme of first half melancholic, second half upbeat, the fingerpicking "Stars in Still Water," slow-building "Icicle Sleeves," and heartbreaking "Saint Naive" are the kinds of atmospheric hymnal ballads his band has built a career on, but -- showcasing his experimental tendencies -- "New Piano Song" is a slightly chaotic and perhaps unfinished fusion of clattering percussion and sprightly piano chords, while "Sticks and Stones" is an emotionally stirring performance of his contribution to the Oscar-nominated animation How to Train Your Dragon. Of course, like Iceland's most famous musical export, Björk, Jónsi's distinctive mystical tones are still perhaps an acquired taste, but like his female compatriot, Go Live suggests that no country appears to do otherworldly avant-garde pop any better.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

Thirty-four years ago, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.
